A Penny For Your Thoughts

by GD Harper
Originally published by BookHippo.uk on 14/03/2016

Should I be worried that soon I’ll be a virtual reality, embedded in four numbers you never forget? Replaced by a flexible enemy who can replace me in a single, contactless moment?

Oh, for the old days when we had evocative, affectionate, even regal names. The farthing and the florin, the sovereign, the half-crown and the thrupenny bit. But I wouldn’t care tuppence to be called a “bob”, and anyone who wants to be a tanner isn’t quite the full shilling. Sorry if that sounds a little rude. But that’s the thing about cash, we can be so petty sometimes.
